Esra Trolonge is a French-Turkish painter based in Bordeaux, France. Her works, adorned with symbolic elements drawn from archaic and primitive art forms, vividly portray the vibrant forces of the natural world. Her motifs are inspired by the narratives and symbolism of ancient civilizations, such as Byzantine mosaics, Egyptian frescoes, primitive African art, and Central Asian shamanism, and reflect her life-long fascination with plants and flowers, which she occasionally incorporates into her pieces. Through meticulous layering techniques and a diverse array of materials, including ink, acrylic, and found objects, Trolonge crafts enchanting tableaux that resonate with viewers, activating their primal connection with nature. Her latest series depicts enchanted gardens–sacred sanctuaries that offer solace in the midst of a turmoiled world. The palette follows the whim of the seasons–blue and pearlhued in the winter, ochre and yellow-tinted in the summer months. A triumphant celebration of the natural realm, Esra’s art embodies a profound reverence for the planet and a call to action for conscious evolution.

I paint nature-inspired scenes that capture the fleeting beauty of our environment and explore the profound connection between humanity and the vastness of the universe. My motifs are inspired by visual themes and symbolism in ancient civilizations, such as Byzantine mosaics, Egyptian frescoes, primitive African art, and Central Asian shamanism.

Through a meticulous layering process, I build relief from a base of ink and watercolor washes, adding acrylic paint and homemade mediums made with heavy body paint, sand, charcoal, plants, and found objects.

My latest series reflects my fascination with gardens as sanctuaries of beauty and shelters against the perils of the world. Each painting is a window into a secret realm, a pocket of heaven where we can reconcile with our primordial roots. By activating our primeval connection to nature, I invite viewers to reclaim their place on the planet and their responsibility to preserve it.
